I have a maven project which has source and target versions as JDK 1.8. And I wanted to build a snap app for the same project. As per the doc it looks like snapcraft "will pull a relocatable OpenJDK via the default-jdk Ubuntu package" and since, my project relies on 1.8 building the app fails. Is there a provision through which I can build the project?

More about jdk 1.8 thread.

Note: I'm supposed to use only LTS in my environments. I also tried the same in 15.10 but still, snapcraft is using openjdk 7 only. I'm not sure why is this happening.

  • I would have the same question. Probably one could just drop in the binaries or oracle's jre.
